    Work/Life Programs
    Sutter EAP

    It’s not easy to give full attention to a job when your employees are concerned about finding the right care for their children or elderly family members; training a new pet; adopting a child; getting out of debt; planning for retirement; or thinking about other issues that affect the well-being of themselves or their families.

    That’s why we designed a comprehensive Work/Life Program that serves as a one-stop resource for a wide range of needs. By researching, locating and qualifying a trusted network of care and service providers to serve our large client base of more than 54,000 employees and their families, we make it easy for your employees to focus on their jobs and still feel confident that they're meeting their family’s needs.

    We begin by conducting a comprehensive assessment that enables us to locate the right resource to meet your employees' specific needs. Then we match their needs with our extensive resources in the following areas:
